Who Are We?
Developing alternatives for learning
Since its inception in 2005, Shikshamitra has worked towards assimilating education with a larger vision of society, emphasizing creativity and equal respect for both humans and the natural environment.
Currently we work as an education resource organization with a heavy emphasis on training teachers. Our training focus is on languages (Bengali and English), art, mathematics and library arts. Closely aligning with teacher training, we are also into material development, publishing, organizing need-based short courses and consultation.
Our office is currently located within the Her Future Coalition building, and we are one of six non-profit organizations participating in this unique co-working space in the Shobhabazar area of Kolkata. We continue with our own work and whenever possible we cooperate with other organizations to help them achieve their goals, and vice-versa.
